March of the Illegals

Nice, nothing like a little Bushitler propaganda to draw warmth to your cause...

Line of the day from the news (and I paraphrase lightly): "the house bill will criminalize being in the country illegally".

I've grown warm to the idea that the mass migration going on now is an importation of poverty that's a sap to the rich at the expense of the working stiff. I'm open to dissuasion though...

There's a lot of talk about how no American will do farm labor. But that's inaccurate. No American will do farm labor at the current wage rates.

Therefore, that just means that illegal labor on farms is like a drug that farmers can't go to rehab for. Would there be a full-scale crack down on illegal aliens, to a satisfactory level, it's entirely plausible (at least to me) that farmers would need to turn to better technology supplemented by legal American labor. Otherwise, the current situation is detrimental to American workers who don't have the training or know-how to work higher-caliber jobs.

Or, from another angle...the Dems like to criticize Bush for the outsourcing that has happened in the past 5 years. How is illegal labor any different? Yet, the Dems have been quiet on the issue at best, at worst, they have supported the hippies who want to let all the illegals into the country possible.
